About Hulu™

Hulu™ is an online movie streaming platform offering ad-supported, on demand streaming videos (this includes movies, TV shows, cartoons, documentaries, music and games). Well received especially for being the first streaming service to offer full current seasons and a collection of back seasons from popular TV channels and content companies (ABC, NBC, FOX, Lionsgate, Comedy Central, Sony Pictures, Paramount, Warner Bros, Ted, MTV), Hulu™ has gained a top place in the online streaming industry, counting around 38 million visitors a month. It is because of this that we decided to answer some of the most common issues regarding Hulu™ in the following FAQ section: 

Is there a good Hulu™ streamer for free?

No streamer does free Hulu™ at the moment. Devices like Roku and PS3 will do Hulu™ Plus. You can also use it on connected TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles (Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360), set-top boxes and mobile phones. A full list of streaming devices for Hulu™ plus is available here:

Hulu Plus, Hulu streamer, Roku, PS3, free Hulu, Hulu device, streaming device, Nintendo Wii for Hulu.

Where can I find a list with all movie titles and TV shows available on Hulu™?

A list of Hulu™ available movie titles you can find by going to, clicking the “Browse” button and choosing one of the options from the drop down menu: TV shows, Movies, browse by Genre, Trailers or Playlists.

How can I watch Hulu™ videos on my iPad?

You can watch Hulu™ on your iPad or iPhone if you subscribe to Hulu™ Plus for a fee of $7.99 a month. The free iPad app (available in the Apple Store) offers a wider variety of movies and TV shows and a higher resolution when available (720p) than the free, basic Hulu™ does but you cannot use it until you subscribe to the Hulu™ Plus service.

Another way to stream and watch Hulu videos on the iPad would be using the PlayOn software on your computer. PlayOn is able to stream and convert web content from Hulu™ and other similar channels (Netflix , CBS, Pandora, Nick, ESPN, Amazon are also included) so that you can play it on devices like the iPad , Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii etc. What you have to do is to download and install PlayOn on your computer (you can try it for free for the first 2 weeks and the paid version is a lot cheaper than Hulu™ Plus – cost varies from $20 to $40/year depending on promotional deals), follow a few simple instructions and once your iPad recognizes the software, you are set to go.

Is there a way to stream and watch Hulu™ movies on Xbox 360 without the Hulu™ Plus?

You would have to pay for Hulu™ Plus to be able to stream it and watch it on your Xbox 360 but you can always sign up for a one week free trial. PlayOn software for PC is also known to enable streaming Hulu™ content on your Xbox 360 without subscribing to Hulu™ Plus but it does involve a monthly fee of $4,99.

How can I watch Hulu™ videos outside the US?

Using a VPN is probably the best option when you are out of the US. A VPN is a virtual connection network. It is connected to US servers through registered IP addresses in the US which allow you to access video platforms like Netflix™ or Hulu™. Another way to watch Hulu™ if you are not in the US would be using unblock-us. Unblock-us usually keeps your full internet speed and is known to be faster than using a VPN. You can try it out for free for the first week and pay a $4.99 fee per month afterwards if you decide it is worth keeping.

How many devices can I connect with Hulu™ Plus?

According to the page linked below, there seems to be no limit to the number of devices that can be attached to a Hulu™ Plus account, thought they only want you to use only one at a time:

How can the streaming video quality on Hulu™ be improved?

The most common problems for discontinuous videos are slow download speed and inconsistent wireless connections. Anything that you are streaming over the internet will be downsized and compressed to accommodate low-bandwidth users. First, you should make sure that your computer is fast enough to support video streaming. Second, to maximize the stream flow it’s better to avoid doing anything else on the internet while streaming. Other programs running on your computer might also add up to the poor streaming quality you’re experiencing with Hulu™. Delete any unnecessary files from your computer like cookies or temporary internet files. By doing so, your computer will have more available memory for loading video streams from Hulu™. If the problem persists, you can also address the Hulu™ support team for more information on the matter.

How can I watch Hulu™ on a BlackBerry Playbook device?

PlayOn software enables you to stream and watch movies and TV shows from Hulu™ on your BlackBerry Playbook device. PlayOn can be used to stream content on multiple other devices as well, such as the iPad, Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo Wii etc. Just make sure that both the computer and BlackBerry Playbook are on the same WiFi. Also do not forget to click on “Enable Mobile Access” on your computer PlayOn settings.

The DingleBerry app is also known to let you watch Hulu movies on your Playbook.

How can I watch online movies for free with Hulu™?

You just have to go to, click the “Browse” button and choose one of the options there; you will then see a list of available movies and TV shows which you can watch for free.

What is the difference between free Hulu™ and Hulu™ Plus?

First of all, can only be watched on your computer while Hulu™ Plus is available for instant streaming on multiple devices including internet-connected TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, set-top boxes, iPads, iPhones etc. Another difference would be that Hulu™ is streaming in standard definition and Hulu™ Plus is streaming in HD (when available). Content wise, Hulu offers up to the last five episodes that aired on TV whereas Hulu™ Plus offers all current season episodes from all popular TV shows. And, last but not least, is free and Hulu™ Plus is only available for $7.99 a month.
